Next Wave of Acer Handsets Teased

Acer is continuing to make a push to be one of the more prolific manufacturers of Windows Phones. According to a report from Digitimes, Acer is preparing three or four Windows Mobile phones for release in 2010. Apparently some of these devices will be low end devices with development outsourced to Inventec Appliances. Acer will continue in-house development of their higher-end models (the word Snapdragon was mentioned).

In a less encouraging note for Windows Mobile purists, Acer plans include more emphasis on Google’s Android platform, with 5 or 6 devices being targeted.
